Re: China to attack Taiwan ‘the day a US warship visits’: diplomat

On the flip side I hope we don't send a ship in, at least now. We have enough delicate issues we're working through with China. It would just be a very unnecessary provokation, with no real purpose that I can see.

Re: FCC Repeals Net Neutrality Rules

You're right. There is some legitimate concern that some ISPs can charge...say...Netflix because of the enormous amount of data they use. And Netflix would turn around and raise prices to pay for it. But the idea of your ISP charging you extra to watch YouTube videos? nah. I believe the leftist med...

Re: Syria peace talks

It seems to me Syria and Iran don't be on the same page as Russia regarding settling things down in the Levant.

Russia can only play this game so long I wonder if they run out of patience with them?

Re: Abbas: UN should lead Mideast peace process

Netanyahu will most likely come down in history as the last one who stood in the way of the peace process in the Middle East. Honestly, the US needs to bring all of the Middle East leaders to a table, sit them down, shut them up, and tell them they have one final opportunity to work out a peace dea...

Re: Sweden to re-establish military unit on Baltic Sea island of Gotland

@Obreid Indeed, no military presents on the island is just asking for trouble. Even a little squad as a "standing army" is a show of force or your words "possession" to maintain a show of ownership.

Re: Sweden to re-establish military unit on Baltic Sea island of Gotland

I dont know. I'm pretty sure sweden is going through a refugee crisis just like the rest of Europe at the moment. I feel like they should be more focused Internally at the moment. I mean, what they are doing isnt really of significance. 350 men are nothing compared to what russia could deploy in ju...
